How to Get Rid of Blackheads, Blackhead removal and treatment

Blackheads are nothing but clogged pores. They generally appear on a oily skin. On combination skin they appear on the nose. Unclean skin is a breading ground for blackheads. Blackheads are a mixture of dead cells of the skin, oil and bacteria. When they come into contact with the atmospheric oxygen, a chemical reaction takes place and the mixture darkens to form blackheads.

How to Get Rid of Blackheads?

Getting rid of blackheads is quite easy if you try this natural home remedy for blackheads. Apply a paste of gram flour and curd on the affected area. When the mixture hardens and dries up, gently scrap off with your finger tips and wash the face.

Beauty is a divine gift, and it is our sacred duty to guard it. But, unfortunately, quacks are doing a great damage to the beauty culture.Taking advantage of the growing beauty consciousness among women, there has been a large growth of the so called beauty clinics or beauty parlours. Not all of them are run or managed by experts. Most of those who profess to restore your looks are only money making business establishments and it is dangerous to fall into their trap, because they are manned by untrained beauticians. I recount here an experience. A couple of days back, a woman with a swollen face came to my clinic. Even her eyes were puffy. On enquiry, I learnt the disturbing fact that a so called beautician had used a hair pin to remove blackheads from her face. The experiment caused infection the same evening and the woman developed burning and pricking sensation and had a high temperature.

If you consult some beautician for the treatment of your blackheads, make sure, a sterilized implement is used for removing blackheads.

A gadget, known as 'blackhead extractor' is available these days. It should be cleaned regularly and the gadget should be kept in hydrogen peroxide before use.
